SOUTH WHITLEY — Kent Theater sits with a nearly perfect façade at 220 S. State St. in South Whitley, but look behind the exterior and the theater is anything but perfect.

Upon a recent inspection of the site that once housed Turning Point Church, the former theater looked much the same as it did nine months ago when a fire gutted the theater, causing the roof to collapse Feb. 18.

Debris and rubble still cover the theater seating, while parts of the structure still display blackened walls.
